Courtney Robertson accused of lifting faux ' Bachelor' vows from TV

Courtney Robertson has been accused of lifting the vows she recited to The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik during their mock wedding from Sex and the City's series finale.

"Ben, I'm looking for love -- real love -- passionate, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other-love. To love unconditionally a partner and best friend for the rest of my life. When I look at you from across the room, I know your happiness is the key to mine. To have and to hold and to nurture. I'll give you my hand, my heart," Robertson told Flajnik during their hometown date's "rustic" outdoor ceremony in Scottsdale, AZ during Monday night's broadcast.

"I will trust you, respect you, encourage you, laugh with you, and cry with you for all the days of my life. Ben, I want to love you and treat you right -- every day and every night. I hope you know I'm 100% percent ready for marriage and I'm so happy I found you. I want you to know that I'm in love with you."

However, a few lines from the faux wedding vows the 28-year-old model from Santa Monica, CA wrote were allegedly plagiarized from the script written by Sex and the City writer and director Michael Patrick King, according to Us Weekly.

"I am someone who is looking for love -- real love -- ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other-love," actress Sarah Jessica Parker told actor Mikhail Baryshnikov during a break-up scene that took place in the suite of a Paris hotel.

Monday night's episode of The Bachelor had also shown Robertson expressing surprise over how impressive Flajnik's vows were considering he had written them on the fly just moments before the fake ceremony commenced.

"That's so good! You just did that right just then? Oh my God!" the bachelorette told Flajnik immediately after he recited his vows to her, suggesting she had prepared her own vows in advance.

The Bachelor host Chris Harrison apparently found it humorous that show viewers discovered a connection between the two series when asked about it in a Tuesday interview with TV Guide

"Apparently, we have the most astute fans in the world -- or it was just a good line," Harrison said.
